Open a web map

Web maps provide an easy starting point for creating and configuring a map in Esri Maps for SharePoint. The Map Center of the ArcGIS Map Web Part provides access to web maps created on ArcGIS Online. To access maps in the My Maps or Groups tabs of the Map Center, or web maps you have recently viewed, you need to sign in to ArcGIS Online using either the Sign In button on the ribbon or the link in the Map Center.
